  • 3/4 lb White American Cheese sliced from the deli, torn into 1"- 2" pieces
  • 3/4 cup half & half
  • 1/4 cup Roasted Poblano Peppers peeled, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons diced canned jalapeno slices optional, for added spice
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons salsa whichever is your favorite


  • In a medium microwave safe bowl, combine all of the cheese and roughly half of the half and half.
  • Microwave for 1 minute. Stir to break up cheese bits.
  • Microwave for 1 more minute. Stir again to combine. Stir in the rest of the half and half.
  • Microwave for 1 minute. Stir in the remaining ingredients ( salsa, all peppers. ) All of the cheese should be melted, but if it is not, continue microwaving and stirring in one minute increments until it is.


Diced chiles of any type ( including canned ) may be substituted for the poblanos.
